While in God's Grip!
"Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom." - Psalm 90:12
I'm always amazed how nature seems to find balance in this world. If there is something we can all learn from the world, that would be to be more aware of our purpose and how God's presence effects that purpose.
A leaf begins life like many leaves do. As spring awakens trees following winter, they come forth, providing a canopy that offers shade, and air to those who breath oxygen. The forest provides resources used by many.
They weather storms, and rustle in the wind until they find themselves swirling in the wind, or as in the case of this leaf, adrift upon the water and fully relying on the current to take it to the shore.
Our reliance on God provides us with not just purpose, but helps us in all stages of our life.
Life and death are connected by vulnerability, while both remind us of the preciousness of our lives.
Praying we all find the place where God wants us to be.
Stay in God's grip!
